This ancient Chinese bird kept its feathers, and colors, for 130 million years
A new technique — which can also be used for dinosaurs, one paleontologist said — led to the discovery of key proteins within the old feathers.
Assortment of small and large ammonites clustered around pieces of wood. These ammonites were found in lower lias rock in Lyme Regis, England. Lower lias is limestone rock which was laid down in the early Jurassic period (195–172 million years ago). Part of the Jurassic sea bed (grey) can also be seen in the image.
"Welcome home to one of the rarest trilobites in the world. Thanks to a gift by Robert Hazen, this fossil of a new Apianurus species is now a part of the Museum's collection. This beautiful fossil was discovered by paleontologist Jake Skabelund in 2011 at the Walcott-Rust Quarry in New York." --Deep Time at the Smithsonian Facebook Page
